INTELLIGENCE FOR THE WINE CONSUMER


BY LEN NAPOLITANO

How does wine get so many flavors and aromas?


Each type of grape, also referred to as a grape variety from
Chardonnay to Zinfandel gets its primary flavors as it grows on the
vine; it creates a default flavor profile based on the grapes genetic
composition. This primary flavor profile forms the grapes true
varietal character. For example, you may have noticed flavors and
aromas similar to melon and tropical fruit in virtually every
Chardonnay; blackcurrant and cassis in Cabernet Sauvignon; red and
black cherry in Pinot Noir. Although there are always variations in
degree, these characteristics are fairly typical of wines made from
these grapes regardless of where the wine is made or who makes it.
True varietal character develops as the grapevine, like all plants,
converts sunlight energy to chemical activity in the natural process of
photosynthesis.
Yeast, a microscopic organism living on grape skins, gets to work
releasing true varietal character and creating even more flavors
once thousands of grapes have been picked from vines, cracked
open, and transferred to a tank or bin. As sugar in the grapes is
converted into alcohol by yeast, sweet fresh juice evolves into dry,

potent wine. Later, even more wine flavors and aromas emerge
during the wines aging period when chemical compounds interact
with each other and microscopic amounts of air. Generally, fragrance
developed during aging is referred to as wine bouquet, while aroma
derives directly from fermentation.
Wines aged in oak barrels get additional contributions of aroma
and flavor from wood, variable due to differences in both the
geographic origin of the tree (most often, America or France) and the
degree to which the wood is toasted (heated by exposure to an open
flame). Toasted oak can add hints of coconut, vanilla, mocha, coffee,
toasted bread or clove, among other aspects, while injecting
sweetness to the wines bouquet. Brand new barrels filled with wine
for the first time add these qualities with significantly greater impact
than older barrels. Old, aroma-less barrels, referred to as neutral, are
used to hold wine during aging without adding new flavors.
While primary flavors and aromas originate from grapes,
specifically, its the grape skin that gives color to wine.

BY JOSH STEIN

Winter Fun in the Cellar


Winery operations are year-round, but the intensity of harvest,
which is so dependant upon time and speed, gives way to a
much more gentle process as our winter rains begin, cellars get
more chilly and damp, and wines begin to finish their primary
and secondary fermentations and are racked into barrels.
Alternatively, wines fermented in tanks which are meant to finish
those processes in the barrel are transferred off the gross lees,
the solid by-products of making wine, which include dead yeast
cells and various nutrients, so as to allow the oaks influence to be
in the mix earlier in the production process before the wine is
even completely made. Regardless of which route toward oak
reds and some whites take, the reasons for barreling down
involve a slowdown into cellar time. And thus simultaneously
begins a series of decisions since the choice of using barrels is just
that, a choice, and one with many subtle logistical and not-sosubtle cost options available to the winemaker or cellarmaster.
Before going into those options, lets review what going into
barrel does for a wine. While almost all reds spend some time in
contact with oak, only some whites do. Oak imparts an
underlying creaminess, and time in contact with it encourages
the softening malolactic fermentation to begin and to complete
since Oenococcus oeni, the organism which acutally does the
acid shift, is resident in oak; this serves to soften the wine since
lactic acid is half as strong as malic (think milk versus apple
juice) and provides perhaps another of the reasons barrels of oak
were chosen for storage in antiquity. Lastly, tannin formation and
interchange takes place between the barrels and the wine, and
time in barrel in combination with the micro-oxygenation as the
wood breathes serve to help create a chemically stable, silkier
finished wine. Think of a slowly bobbing tea bag versus one
pushed against the cup with a spoonthe slower method
produces tannins less rough on the tongue.
With that as context, whether oak has been used as a primary
fermentation vessel or not, when ready to age in contact with

wood, the wine is transfered either from tank to barrel or from


barrel to barrel. Gravity-fed wineries do these processes through
the manipulation of space to allow the wine to literally drain
downwards without mechanical aids; most other wineries use
pumps of various designs to move wine horizontally or vertically
around their production spaces into barrels. Some wineries go
the opposite direction, concatenating their wines into larger lots
held in large oak or redwood vats or steel tanks, with or without
oak stave inserts.
Here is an example of where creativity and cost realities must
meet. A new, imported barrel is north of $1,000, and that barrel
will be used at most four times for any discernible oakiness it
would impart. Think of a storm-battered piece of wood, only
whats left in the barrel after wine has been in it for a year or two
resembles more a dark, yucky wine aquarium than driftwood.
Once exhausted, a barrel can be shaved and re-coopered for an
additional cost, but its just that, an additional cost which is
dependent on the coopers skills to be done properly or else the
wines stored in the rejuvenated barrel will take on port-like
overtones. This is why some wineries choose instead to use older,
neutal barrels or small steel tanks with various kinds of oak
adjuncts like sticks, beads or cubes inserted, or they will use
larger staves with notches, hanging on a lip around the edge of a
large steel tank.
Fundamentally, as the weather turns, what is mechanically a
simple process separating liquid from most of the solids from
fermentation becomes a much more complicated cultural and
thus financial process. How much of a difference this makes in
consumer awareness and apprecation is, of course, subject to
debate. What is undeniable, however, is the impact of oak on
finished wine and its impact
to the bottom line for the
winemaker. Consider that
when next looking at a barrel
chai: its not just a room of
wood and liquid its the
recorder of winegrowing
decisions (and costs). Enjoy!

Candlelight Inn Napa Valley


A Romantic Rendezvous for Your Sweetheart and You
A first encounter with the Candlelight Inn is a bit like love at first sight! As you approach the
beautifully maintained and landscaped Tudor Mansion built as a residence in 1929 it appears to
straddle Easum Drive, a modest residential area. The street not far from Napas Town Center
ends as you park in the welcoming front courtyard. Right here, in the bustling epicenter of everything that makes the wine country so desirable, the luxurious ten-room inn sits on its own private,
one-acre, secluded park. It is bordered by Napa Creek and nestled beneath towering redwoods.
Here, a spacious pool/cabana is surrounded by meticulously landscaped flowering shrubs, bushes
and rock gardens. Noticeable sounds are birds and rustling leaves.
Originally designed for an active familys enjoyment, Candlelight Inn is now a private retreat for
discriminating visitors to the wine country. Many guests, who were smitten by that first impression,
now return year after year to relax and renew their enjoyment of all the region offers. On each visit,
there is more to do. In recent years, Napa has become a hub for worldrenowned chefs, and each year brings more restaurant openings. At the
inn, guests can enjoy complimentary wine and hors doeuvres as well as
snacks and drinks at all hours. A three-course breakfast featuring local
and seasonal foods is served each morning. Most rooms have a deck or
balcony, a two-person marble Jacuzzi tub and a fireplace. All have air
conditioning, TV, telephone and wireless internet access. Each is unique
and tastefully designed. An on-site concierge provides personalized
dining and wine country touring recommendations. The concierge also
helps guide you to the numerous attractions of wine country hiking
and bicycling, kayaking, bird watching, cultural attractions, balloon
rides and spa services. The inn has received numerous awards and been
featured in USA Weekend and National Geographic Traveler.
The Candlelight Inn is located at 1045 Easum Drive, Napa.

GRGICH HILLS ESTATE


Start the New Year Right
Tasting the Finest Cabernets in the Valley!
BY MONICA L. DASHWOOD

GRGICH HILLS
E S TAT E
Open daily from 9:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
1829 Saint Helena Highway, Rutherford, CA 94573
(707) 963-2784 | www.grgich.com

Bask in good company with Grgich Hillss family of Cabernet


Sauvignon vintage wines. Located in Rutherford, California, Grgich Hills
Estate Winery opens their vault and offers a special library flight of five
Cabernets from 2003 to 2008, just for you! For a limited time only, wine
lovers will have the rare opportunity to taste delicious wines from
Grgichs renowned historic vintages poured via a Coravin.
Founder Miljenko Mike Grgich and his team have been making
exquisite wines for over fifty years. With that kind of winemaking
experience, theres much to be said about these five wines, each deserving
a brief mention. The 2003 Grgich Hills Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon
won the San Francisco Gold Medal in 2007, and marks the first vintage
their Cabernet Sauvignon was estate grown, controlling everything from
the vineyard to the bottle. The 2004 Cabernet Sauvignon was created in
perfect growing conditions, with an early spring and warm summer,
producing a small crop of fully-ripe grapes with wonderful concentration
and deep flavors of black cherry, rose petals and cocoa powder. The 2005
Cabernet vintage benefited from a long, cool growing season, as the
grapes ripened smoothly, producing an elegant wine with aromas of black
fruit, licorice, and a touch of black pepper on the finish. And, the 2008
Yountville Selection Cabernet Sauvignon, from vines planed in 1959 and
we believe to be the second oldest Cabernet in the Napa Valley
What these vintages have in common is the fine attention to detail
from start to finish. Similar to the 2003 to 2005 Cabernets, the 2006
vintage was created from grapes fermented with yeasts that naturally
occur on the grapes, allowing the wine to gain flavors and color from
extended skin contact. Each lot was aged separately for several months,
and then blended to create a wine that is more complex than the
individual parts. The 2006 is an elegant wine with aromas of black
cherries and licorice and a long finish. The result is a full-bodied, elegant
Cabernet Sauvignon with pure flavors and a pronounced sense of place.
Lastly, the 2007 vintage had a long, dry growing season, producing a
smaller yield but providing concentrated flavors to the taste. This velvety
smooth wine showcases rich aromas of black berries and licorice, and a
hint of cocoa powder.
For just $50, this exclusive flight is offered daily in their tasting room
without a reservation and poured in their winery salon for a more
personalized experience. For those white wine lovers, they will be
releasing their new vintage of 2013 Napa Valley Essence. This vintage is
100% Sauvignon Blanc with wonderful aromatics of tropical guava, lime
zest and rose petals. The 2013 Napa Valley Essence is primarily winery
only, and wont stick around for long.
So dont miss this chance, cozy up and celebrate the New Year with
these iconic wines!

BENNETT LANE WINERY


Venture Off the Beaten Path for a Taste of Calistoga Cabernet
Cabernet Lovers will race to Bennett Lane
for a Sneak Peek of their newest vintage February 7th

BENNETT LANE WINERY


Open daily from 10 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.

The first weekend in February is all about Cabernet in the valley as wineries up and down
Highway 29 and the Silverado Trail release their luscious Napa Cabernets. One of our favorite
stops every year is Bennett Lane Winery in Calistoga, known for its succulent Cabernets, their
signature feasting wine, Maximus, and for one of the finest visitor experiences in the valley.
Founded by Randy and Lisa Lynch in 2003, Bennett Lanes off-the-beaten-track location and
friendly tasting room offers visitors to Napa a secret gem and a great way to learn about
and try some of Napas best wines in a more intimate setting. On Saturday, February 7th,
Bennett Lanes 2012 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon ($55) and 2012 Reserve Cabernet
Sauvignon ($95) will be released and poured for visitors at the tasting room a special
opportunity to get a sneak peek and taste the wines before they are released to the public
later this year. The cost for the release event is $30 per person and includes a flight of new
releases and select award-winning library releases.
Bennett Lanes Cabs have continuously garnered critical acclaim. In the short period that
the winery has been opened they have received an incredible 36 scores of 90+ points between
Wine Spectator, Wine Enthusiast and Robert Parkers Wine Advocate. Year after year the
popular blend of Cabernet, Merlot and Syrah has received 90 points or above from the critics.
The red feasting wine, as Maximus is affectionately referred to on the label, demonstrates
owners Randy and Lisa Lynchs commitment to making wine an integral part of entertaining
with family and friends.
Bennett Lanes wines are crafted to be approachable, yet complex or what owner Randy
Lynch calls the best of both worlds, meaning you can drink them today, but they are
structured enough to cellar for several years. My goal is for us to make consistent wines
both in quality and taste from year to year, so that consumers can trust Bennett Lane
wines.

WINE COUNTRY THIS WEEK | ON THE COVER


Only eleven years old, Bennett Lane has quickly become one of
the top vintners in the valley and has upgraded their tasting room to
match the amazing accolades that the wines have received in their
first few years. It is fast becoming the must-see destination for wine
lovers visiting Napa Valley. In addition to the elegantly appointed
tasting bar, they are featuring their custom iPad application for their
guests to use for an interactive tasting experience. Guests can not
only read the latest reviews and tasting notes but find interesting
food pairing recipes, share their favorite new wines on facebook, and
email their personal wine notes home, all while tasting a glass of
Napas finest. Owner Randy Lynch notes, As a small winery we strive
to not only make the best hand-crafted wines available, but also one
of the most educational and enjoyable tasting experiences around for
guests coming to visit one of the premier wine growing regions in the
world.
The tasting flight at Bennett Lane on a non-release event day is
$15 and includes four of Bennett Lanes wines, the Cabernet, Reserve
Chardonnay, Maximus and a library red wine selection. Put Bennett
Lane on your short-list of must-visit tasting rooms as the production
is small and the Cabernets sell out quickly. Visiting Bennett Lane
affords tasters another rarity with a small winery a likely run-in
(and perhaps a last minute barrel tasting if youre lucky!) with owners
Randy and Lisa Lynch.
Bennett Lane Winery is located in an understated Mediterraneanstyle building at the beautiful northern end of the Napa Valley, and is
considered well worth the drive. Located at 3340 Highway 128,
approximately two miles north of Calistoga, Bennett Lane Winerys
tasting room is open daily from 10 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.

Just In Case Thomas Arvid 2014


In God We Trust Thomas Arvid 2014

REFLECTING THE GOOD LIFE


Artist Thomas Arvid comes to Napa Valley
So many years ago when Atlanta-based artist Thomas Arvid
began his illustrious painting career, there was something about
the color red that appealed to him. That draw translated itself into
his first oil paintings featuring images of Coca-Cola cans,
Converse tennis shoes, and Radio Flyer wagons, but it was
Arvids still life of a red wine bottle that caught the publics eye.
The wine painting was purchased before it was done drying on the
easel and the rest is history.
Today, at the intersection of fine art, fine food, and fine living,
Arvid has become synonymous with the wine lifestyle. Named one
of the top 25 Artists You Should Know by US Art magazine,
Thomas Arvid has received critical acclaim for his monumental
compositions of wine and his mastery of light, depth, and
reflection. Inspired by the grace and hospitality of Napa Valley,
Arvids compositions are an invitation to take the time to
appreciate sharing a great bottle and good conversation with
friends. Wine is great subject because people are familiar with it.
They really connect to it, says the self-taught Arvid. My paintings
speak to the special moments that people share when they share
wine.
More than 50 exclusive art galleries represent his larger-than-life
paintings in the United States, Canada and Japan, including

Thomas is such a remarkable artist, says North Bay Gallery owner,
Donna Eremian. He is so talented and has such an incredible gift. I consider
him to be the pre-eminent painter of all things wine. Big, bold and larger
than life close-ups portray a hyper-realistic style and casual composition. I
am always amazed by each new Arvid painting and how he captures the
reflections of light in each wine bottle and glass!

New Wine and Cheese Classes at V. Sattui


V. Sattui Winery will host a new series of wine and cheese classes
with Napa Valley chef, Andy Wild, and V. Sattui Cheesemonger Keith
Idle. Since the winery reopened in 1976, one of the features of
V. Sattui is its impressive cheese case filled with 200 cheeses from
around the world.
People love our cheese selection, and they love our wine, says
V. Sattui President, Tom Davies. We want to make the world of
cheese just as fun and approachable as our wines. We also want
people to experience how the right pairing can elevate the flavor of
both the cheese and the wine, and take it over the top.
Chef Wild has worked in several Napa Valley restaurants and is
currently a culinary consultant, caterer and teaches weekend
cooking classes at The Culinary Institute of America at Greystone.
His experience with food and wine combined with his entertaining
style make for a fun two-hour class that will inspire and educate
guests.
Keith Idle has been the cheesemonger at V. Sattui for 30 years and
is very knowledgeable about artisan cheeses from around the world
and the techniques used to make them. This
culinary dream team will lead 20 students in
each class through some delicious discoveries.
Chef Andrew Wild

Beaune wines are produced, the process is


uniquely American. For example,
winemakers might use a grape variety they
would not normally bottle as a stand-alone
wine under their own brand. The grapes
may be sourced from a specific part of a
single vineyard, or the wine might be aged
using a unique barrel regime not regularly
employed by the winery. Some of the most
novel offerings are produced as joint lots
multiple vintners who collaborate to create
a blend exclusively for the Premiere Napa
Valley brand.
The wines are offered as futures at the
auction only to licensed members of the
wine trade for resale to their customers and
ultra-premium wine collectors. Each bottle
is hand-labeled, individually numbered
and signed by the winemaker, similar to a
limited edition work of fine art.

During the gray days of winter, get a taste of the Tuscan sun without hopping on a plane to Italy by
visiting Jacuzzi Family Vineyards in Sonoma Valleys Carneros region.
Modeled after the familys ancestral villa in Italy, the winery boasts impressive Old World
architecture to house its award-winning Italian wine varietals and gourmet olive oils.
Walking through the large wooden doors at the villas entrance, a visitor is faced with the difficult
choice of what to taste first. On the left is the elegant wine tasting room and to the right the Olive
Press tasting room offers samples of the oils and balsamic vinegar made at the winery.
But first, looking up at the hand-blown Murano glass chandelier above the foyer made by an artist
in Italy and then assembled here when the villa was built in 2007, one gets a glimpse of the lengths
winery owners Fred and Nancy Cline reach to pay homage to their familys rich legacy.
Fred Clines grandfather, Giovanni Jacuzzi, was a woodworker and vineyard farmer who taught
Fred about growing wine grapes. You might recognize the Jacuzzi name from another family business:
hot tubs. The seven Jacuzzi brothers, all immigrants from Italy, came to Sonoma County and began
making wooden propellers and turbines. Their propellers wound up on airplanes fighting in World
War I, and eventually their technology ended up in a whirlpool.
The villas walls are adorned with this history, through old propellers mounted to the walls, family
photos and historical tidbits placed throughout the property.
Fred wanted to pay tribute to his grandfather, who taught him how to make wine, said Jim
Caroompas, marketing manager for Jacuzzi winery and its sister winery, Cline Cellars across the street.
What seems to surprise most people is the name Jacuzzi, Caroompas continued. They dont
expect it to be the same family as the ones who invented the jet spas. Most people are unaware of the
familys deep agricultural roots in California.
Cline created a Tuscan experience, said Caroompas, as he named off the myriad of Italian wines
created at Jacuzzi, including the ubiquitous Pinot Grigio, Sangiovese and Nebbiolo as well as rarer
varietals Nero dAvola and Sagrantino.

WINE COUNTRY THIS WEEK | SONOMA COUNTY


The wine tasting room is elegant, spacious and warm, and all tasting is complimentary. It is well
stocked with gifts and wine accouterments.
The Olive Press tasting room across the foyer, a bright room filled with dozens of types of oil and
vinegar, is a destination unto itself. Many people come just for the oil, though the wine is quite good,
too, said Caroompas.
From a viewing window, visitors can see the olive mills imported from Italy that transform olives
harvested from throughout Northern California into award-winning oil.
Visitors can purchase snacks from the tasting room, buy a bottle of wine and walk steps away to the
villas piazza. The square outdoor courtyard is bright and cheery, even on a gray day, and a tranquil place
to relax and immerse in the European charm.
In the center of the piazza, the Clines planted a fig tree transported from the familys original farm in
Oakley. A statue of St. Francis of Assisi, the patron saint of all growing things, stands under the tree.
The north wall of the piazza opens up to the winerys barrel room, which houses three faux frescoes,
custom stained glass windows, vaulted ceilings and a solid marble arch in the entryway carved to depict
Bacchus, the god of wine, and his wife, Ariadne. Many indoor events, including weddings and corporate
parties are held here.
To the east of the piazza, visitors can take in a view of the vineyards and beyond of Lake Jacuzzi, a
wetlands, which, thanks to the seasons rains, has returned this year as a refuge for migratory birds. This is
an equally alluring spot for outdoor weddings, with the expansive views and true wine country feel.
Most weekends are quite busy, Caroompas said, and reservations for parties of six or more are
recommended for tasting or for securing a table in the piazza. Private tastings are also available for a fee.
Joining Jacuzzis wine club gives access to more private tastings in the upstairs Propeller Club Lounge,
as well as discounts and two member events each year.
For a quick getaway, Jacuzzi hosts Pizza in the Piazza the last Sunday of each month from noon to
3 p.m. The event pairs gourmet pizzas with Jacuzzi wines at either $10 for a slice and a glass or $30 for a
whole pie and a bottle. Reservations are recommended.

WINE COUNTRY THIS WEEK | SONOMA COUNTY

INN AT THE TIDES


Tranquility and rejuvenation
on the Sonoma Coast
If youre seeking sanctuary along the Sonoma coast, steer
your way to The Inn at the Tides in Bodega Bay. Whether
visiting for dinner, or stealing away for the night, its an ideal
Northern California Wine Country retreat. This seaside
destination is a place to relax and breathe in brisk, salty air
a short scenic drive from most San Francisco Bay Area
cities.

A distinctive property
The Inn at the Tides quaint cluster of guest lodges are
tiered along a hillside property, designed to preserve and
meld with the coastal surroundings. A majority of the first
floor rooms have private patios, where guests often catch a
glimpse of deer and other wildlife scampering throughout
the grounds. Bodega is lively spot for bird watchers where
hundreds of birds migrate such as egrets, blue herons,
sandpipers and ospreys.

Dining, docks and drinks


Located at the inn, open for dinner, is the Bay View
Restaurant serving delizioso Italian cuisine Wednesday
through Sunday. Its fine dining (yet casual dress) boasts
sweeping views of the tranquil Bodega harbor.
Throughout the year, the Bay View Restaurant hosts its
popular Dinner with the Winemaker series. Guests mingle
and dine with a guest winemaker on these select nights.
Each dinner starts with an optional no-host hors doeuvres
reception at 6:30 p.m., followed by a sit-down prix fixe
dinner at 7 p.m. Each course is paired with wines from the
winemaker featured that night, such as: Kosta Browne
Winery and Trecini Cellars on January 30, Benziger Family
Winery February 13, Vermeil Wines March 20, Ramazzotti
Wines April 24 and more.
Directly across the highway is the popular The Tides
Wharf Restaurant and Bar part of the Inn at the Tides
property. Its a family-friendly restaurant, gift shop and fish
market thats been a bustling favorite of locals and visitors
alike for more than 50 years. Open seven days a week, the
restaurant serves breakfast, lunch and dinner with
panoramic bay views. Find comfort in a bowl of clam
chowder, delve hands-first into steaming Cioppino (bib
recommended), or crack into fresh-caught crabs during the
height of local Dungeness season typically December
through July. (The Tides hosts all-you-can-eat crab feeds
January 23, February 6, 20, March 6 and March 13. Dont
miss out!)

Wine Country This Week Launches Free App


Winery Geek: Californias Most Comprehensive Tasting Room Resource App
Wine Country This Week recently launched Winery Geek, a
comprehensive winery tasting room resource app for iPhone and
Android. The app is free to download and features an all-inclusive
listing of over 2,100 California wineries as far north as Mendocino
and as far south as San Diego. We felt like there was a growing need
in the market for a comprehensive guide for visiting wineries in
California presented in a convenient and accessible app format,
states Mike Giangreco, Publisher of Wine Country This Week.

Winery Database
What makes Winery Geek so convenient is the ability to search for
wineries nearby. Users are provided with a list or map view that
indicates the wineries closest to his or her location; users can click on
any given winery/location and then view a detailed listing including
hours, directions, a click-to-call link, a link that pulls up the winerys
official website and a link that pulls up the winerys Yelp page all
without leaving the Winery Geek app.
As the leading wine tourism publication in Californias wine
country since 1981, Wine Country This Week is best equipped to
meet this need for comprehensive information about Californias
wineries, Giangreco says. We have a complete and expansive
database that we feel is highly beneficial to individuals who enjoy
wine tasting in California. We are very excited to offer Winery Geek
as a service of Wine Country This Week.

Search Features
Unique features of Winery Geek include the ability to search for
wineries by varietals offered or specific attributes including caves,
family or pet friendly, food and wine pairing, picnic areas, vineyard or

New WineryGeek app now available for iPhone and Android!

winery tours and much more! These unique search features help
narrow down their choices when selecting which wineries to visit.

Tasting Deals
Since 1981, Wine Country This Week has maintained longstanding relationships with wineries, making them perfectly poised to
bring Winery Geek users a wide range of tasting deals. Users are be
able to visit a winery, claim the tasting deal with the app and
experience a range of savings on individual wine tasting visits.
Such features are distinguishing marks of Winery Geek and are the
reasons why the initial response to the app has been overwhelmingly
positive. Since the soft launch in July, Winery Geek has seen over
3,500 downloads in just two months!
For more information on Winery Geek, a service of Wine Country
This Week, visit www.winerygeek.com. To join the conversation,

read and only weekly publication designed to be a comprehensive
guide for the millions of annual visitors who travel to California wine
country. The magazine and www.winecountrythisweek.com keep
